We could not speak more highly of Ellis and all the team at the Maryborough for how well we were treated throughout our wedding journey! From the first meeting, Ellis accommodated multiple visits, questions and amendments - they could not have done more to make us feel at ease with all aspects of

the day.
The menu tasting was one of the highlights of the run up to the wedding - the attention to detail and care that was taken with us was second to none.
Throughout the entire wedding day the team were on hand to make sure everything ran smoothly- they really are experts.
We could not rate the Maryborough higher!

Brian and I are delighted that we chose Maryborough Hotel for our wedding day.
We are living abroad and Ellis and her team made it so much easier to plan our wedding from a distance. We felt really well taken care of from the first meeting.

The Orangery was beautiful for our ceremony and the

drinks reception.

Everything ran really smoothly on the day. We really appreciated Mia bringing us to another room for a small break before the dinner for some time to relax. All of the staff at Maryborough checked on us regularly which was lovely.

The food was incredible, and the Christmas atmosphere really made it for us.

We look forward to coming back every time we are home in Cork.

Thanks again,

Claire & Brian

We had our wedding reception at the Maryborough Hotel on May 10th 2019. Every element of the day and planning process surpassed our wildest expectations. All of the staff are wonderful and make you feel like yours is the only wedding in the world. Ellis, our wedding coordinator was so

accommodating, responded to our queries promptly and nothing was too much to ask. Mia, Front of House Manager made us all feel so welcome and special, she went over and above with little treats and thoughtful additions to the rooms. The bridal suite is INCREDIBLE! My bridesmaids and I got ready there and photographs are out of this world. The Orangery makes for the most beautiful drinks reception or ceremony venue. Last but not least the food was divine, our guests are still commenting on the standard of their meal. If you're looking an elegant, homely venue, great food and a personal experience with people you can trust, look no further. I only wish I could it all again!

Myself and John had our Wedding reception in the Maryborough Hotel on Saturday 5th October. It was an amazing day & we can't thank all the staff in the Maryborough for everything they did for us not just on the day itself but also in the build up to our special day and the entire weekend of the

Ellis our Wedding co-ordinator was amazing and so easy to deal with. Her swift reply to all our emails, her friendly and professional attitude made planning our wedding at the Maryborough so stress free.

The venue itself is just incredible, the Orangery is a beautiful setting for the reception drinks and the hotel has beautiful picture opportunities both outside and inside. All the staff were so helpful on our Wedding day and couldn't do enough for us. The food was incredible, the service was amazing and all our guests were so impressed with the venue and we got so many compliments from our guests on all aspects of the day but all the staff at the Maryborough played a huge role in that.

Just want to say the biggest thank you to all the team at the Maryborough for everything ye did on our special day, it meant alot and we look forward to visiting again soon.

Elaine & John.

We visited a few venues in Cork but couldn’t look beyond the Maryborough once we viewed it. The Orangery room itself was spectacular for the drinks reception. From the initial meeting with the wedding coordinator the whole process was professional and stress free. Every detail and possible

Hi Ellis,

I've been meaning to get in touch but only just getting back to normal today! I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help over the past year. You've been so professional, helpful and quick in getting back to me. Any request was met. I had no idea how much organising went

into a wedding so the assistance and advice on your part was really appreciated!
I was delighted with our wedding in the Maryborough, the timings were perfect, the rooms were beautiful and the food was great. Myself and Conleth had an amazing time and we loved the extra details like the champagne and chocolates in the room and the warm welcome when we came from the church. I've had so many compliments about the venue in general, the food & wine served and the helpful and friendly staff. I'll definitely recommend ye for a wedding if I'm asked!
I can't wait to visit again and not worry about wedding planning :).

We fell in love with the Maryborough from the very first time we visited, the venue itself is stunning and has such an amazing ambience. Not only did we get married in here we also got engaged and were made to feel so special. The hotel went above and beyond to make that memory so precious to us

Read More

that it was an easy decision for us to get married in the Orangery. There were several reasons that helped us make this decision, including how beautiful the Orangery is and Ellis, the wedding coordinator she was so competent, knowledgeable, approachable and easy to work with from the second we spoke to her. All of this together made the planning of the wedding so enjoyable and stress free. We loved staying at the Maryborough with our friends and family on the run up to our wedding day and got to enjoy some pre-wedding drinks with our guests in Bellini’s bar and restaurant. All I can say about the wedding day was WOW! Ellis and all the staff went above and beyond and are so genuine and courteous and it was so lovely knowing that they would do absolutely anything to make our guests enjoy the day. The setting for the wedding was beautiful we were truly blown away by everything and luckily the weather was spectacular that we got to enjoy our drinks reception out in the garden. The orangery was set up for our reception and words cannot describe how beautiful it was. We made the best decision of our lives to get married in the Maryborough and we could not thank Ellis and all the staff for truly making our dream wedding come through, it was a real-life fairy tale. The day was more than what we dreamed of; we could not recommend the Maryborough enough as they are just simply incredible.

Maryborough Hotel is a brilliant hotel for wedding or special event! It is by fair my favorite hotel in Cork!
Maryborough Hotel went above & beyond for our wedding day! Our guests have been raving about the venue since our wedding day! We had Ellis as our wedding co-coordinator and from the day we

met her, it made the whole wedding planning process as straight forward & stress free! Nothing was too much & everything was very well explained and ideas suggested!
The hotel is fab venue, it is hard to beat in Cork in my opinion! Drinks reception in the orangery which is like no other drinks reception room in Cork with open doors onto the gardens if weather is good, is truly an idyllic surrounding! Meal was divine and all well paced and timed and everyone really enjoyed it! All the staff couldn't do enough for everyone and really made the day special for everybody!
Overall day was brilliant as a result of an amazing venue like Maryborough Hotel & it really made our wedding day having such a beautiful venue with good food, good staff & good service. Brilliant Wedding venue! :)
on Wed, 30th of October, 2019
We can’t put into words how much we enjoyed everything about the Maryborough for our wedding. Most importantly, our wedding coordinator, Ellis, was an absolute pleasure to deal with, from the day we viewed the hotel as a potential venue to the big day itself (and also when we’ve bumped into her

since!!). For us, having such a positive point of contact was key to us enjoying our big day and the lead up to it. Nothing was ever a problem, and anything we wanted to discuss about the day was handled so professionally and efficiently. The food on the day was amazing, and so many of our guests commented on both the meal and the service. The tasting was my favourite experience of the whole wedding. Our parents, families and friends all had a fantastic experience staying at the hotel, and there were so many little touches that our parents in particular really appreciated. I would wholeheartedly recommend the Maryborough to any couple planning their wedding. I’ve heard stories of pre wedding stress, and can honestly say that our dealings with the hotel and Ellis kept us happy and excited throughout the planning and the wedding day itself

Hi Ellis,

Myself and John would like to say that we had the most wonderful day of our lives at our wedding on the 21st September 2019, and we put so much of this down to yourself and your team at the wonderful Maryborough Hotel.

From the moment we arrived on Wednesday, to our departure on

Read More

Monday, every staff member across every department of the hotel was so welcoming, accommodating and thoughtful to make our stay the best we could have imagined. They all worked so hard and nothing was too much bother. We also know that whilst we met a lot of the staff, there were other staff members in the background who we didn’t meet but who did a superb job. All staff are a real credit to themselves and the hotel.

Two areas we did receive many compliments, was the food and service, both of which were superb throughout the weekend. Please send on our thanks to the chef, the catering manager on the night of our wedding and all the kitchen and waiting staff. Having said this, we also got lots of other compliments on other areas of the hotel, from how well the rooms were cleaned and made up to how friendly the leisure facility staff were.

The aim of our day was for everyone to relax, having a great time and celebrate our marriage and we definitely achieved this. Many of our family and friends from the UK are hoping to return to Cork, and stay at the Maryborough hotel next year.

Thanking you again.
Best Wishes

Alison & John

We had our wedding in the Maryborough on the 20th sep and I honestly couldn’t recommend the hotel enough. The staff make this hotel absolutely fantastic. From day 1 of dealing with Ellis, the wedding coordinator , she was a dream, not once did I ever feel like I was being a bother to her, no

Read More

matter how many times I contacted her.
From stepping in through the front door the staff couldn’t do enough for me, it really made me feel very special and like a vip on our wedding day. During the day the manager in charge of that part of the day would come up and introduce themselves and ask that I come to them if I needed anything at all. I had so many of my guests comment on how gorgeous the hotel was and remark on the level of service. 3 weeks after my wedding I’m still getting messages from people about the food they had for the wedding, it was sublime.
I think so say I wouldn’t change a thing speaks volumes and I think any hotel would be hard pushed to try and top The Maryborough. One more aspect I’d like to mention is the service I received in the lead up to the wedding itself along with the actual day, if I was popping in to check something. No matter what staff I met from reception, porters or managers I always left feeling like such a valued customer! I’m going to feel very hard done by going to other hotels after experiencing the level of service that The Maryborough commit to!

We had our wedding here on the 12th of July 2019 and I can honestly say it was amazing from start to finish. Planning the wedding was an absolute breeze thanks to the incredible Ellis, she couldn’t have been more helpful and approachable with any questions we had. The attention to detail from the

managers and staff is just unbelievable and the little touches they add to your day really make this hotel stand out from the rest. All our guests told us it was the best wedding they were ever at and that they couldn’t get over the amazing food and service. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone planning on getting married, everything about it is 10/10.

As our one year anniversary approaches we’ve been thinking back on our wedding day at Maryborough. We couldn’t have been happier with how the day went. The Orangery was such a perfect, beautiful setting for our ceremony and the hotel staff were always friendly, attentive and professional. We

can’t thank Ellis enough for her care and attention in the lead up to our big day...she made the whole experience so easy and relaxed. We still have guests talking about how fantastic the food was too! I can’t recommend the Maryborough highly enough, we loved every minute of our time there!

My husband and I held our wedding reception exactly one week ago at the Maryborough Hotel and if we were to do it all again we definitely wouldn't change a thing. We had been looking for awhile at different venues around Cork but were drawn to the Maryborough again and again. The orangerie, the

gardens, the gorgeous ballroom, everything was just perfect. As we live in France we took a leap of faith and booked the date without actually officially meeting with any of the hotel staff. However, from the very beginning Ellis was professional, friendly and competent. We knew we were in great hands. When we finally did visit the hotel for our menu tasting we were completely reassured that we had made the right choice. Everything was perfect, the staff were lovely and they were always willing to accommodate our requests. As my husband is French it meant a lot of our guests were flying over from France. There was absolutely no problem for the hotel when we asked if we could translate the menu for them. Our guests were very impressed by the organisation on the day of our wedding and all commented on the fact that everything went off without a hitch. Those who stayed overnight particularly loved the breakfast the next day. Our bridal suite was just divine and our only regret is that we can't do it all over again! Thank you, thank you, thank you to Ellis, Carmel and Orla for your energy and patience over the last few months and for always replying to our endless emails! They must have at least 2 weddings every weekend, but we always felt like we were the only couple getting married! Thank you also to all the other staff, whose names I don't recall. From the reception to the restaurant, you're all super!!
on Wed, 1st of May, 2019
The most amazing wedding venue from the get go! Ellis and the whole team at the Maryborough did a fantastic job and our guests could not stop complimenting the food and service on the day. We honestly could not have asked for a better day and wish we could do it all over again! Thanks to all at the

We were absolutely delighted with how our wedding went in the Maryborough. From planning stages with Ellis, to the food tasting, to the day itself we were highly impressed with the high quality of everything. All of our guests loved the food, and the wine which you patiently waited for us to choose

the right one at the tasting was lovely. The Orangerie was fabulous for the drinks reception, and the gin table was another talking point, it went down very well! The service on the day was also impeccable. We can’t fault a simple thing! We found all of the staff so easy to work with and so professional. Thanks so much for making our wedding day so enjoyable

thing. Ellis and the team at the Maryborough are amazing. They made us and our guests feel so special. Critically, my husband and I didn’t have to worry about a thing, from the moment we booked the Maryborough, Ellis and the team looked after everything. It really was a stress free experience that allowed us to fully appreciate and enjoy our big day.

Thank you Ellis x

Myself and my wife got married here in December and what an amazing day. As I am in the hotel business and have been involved in running weddings with over 10 years or so it was so important we picked the right venue, we actually viewed and had showarounds in 9 different hotels in one week, however

Read More

once we met the team and seen the Maryborough we knew it was the perfect place, we booked it the next day! Leading up to the wedding was just so easy, Ellis our coordinator was just so efficient and knowledgeable and we both felt so at ease as we knew everything was taken care of. From the menu tasting to the final meetings everything was a breeze and Ellis was always on hand to answer a call or an email. The day itself couldn’t have gone better, the hotel looked magical with the Christmas decorations and we took fantastic photos outside and inside the hotel, the photographer had so much to work with as we decided to do all our photos there after the church. Ellis, Justin the general manager and all the management team were there to greet us whilst all the guests were being looked after in the beautiful orangery which is just a breathtaking reception area. Our package included canopies of all types, a gin and tonic station and Prosecco so our guests were all catered for and had a great time in the orangery. Everything went so smoothly and we really just were able to relax and enjoy our day. The Sherrard suite looked amazing and the food was fantastic, the feedback we got from all our guests was brilliant. I had hotel owners, head chefs etc at the wedding and they all were just blown away with the quality of the food and service. Shiby and his team were so efficient and professional for the meal but above all the friendliness of the staff was a stand out point, they couldn’t do enough for us and our guests. Eamonn the waiter on the top table was excellent and all the family commented on how good he was and how interactive he was with both our families. Of course the punctuality of the day and night was important to us as we didn’t want to lose any time on our band etc but Ellis and Shiby had this all under control. We didn’t even think about it, it just all went so smoothly. We had such a great night dancing and the late food again was spot on, so tasty and so well presented. It was the best night of our lives and I wish we could do it all again! We stayed the next night in the bridal suite again, they have two bridal suites and both are phenomenal rooms, it was just pure luxury and we felt like royalty in the suite. Thanks so much to everyone in the hotel who made this such a special day for us, from the minute we booked the hotel over two years ago to the day itself it was just everything we ever dreamed of. We recently got our wedding video and the hotel looked spectacular, we certainly made the right choice and we had such a great day. A special thanks again to Ellis who just made it all happen. From the staff at the hotel reception to the bar staff in the residents bar, they all played a part in making this such a wonderful day and are a credit to the hotel. We highly recommend any future couples to have their reception here, a magical venue. Thanks again, guys. Conor and Emma. X

I highly recommend the hotel. We knew it was the hotel for us very early on. The setting is beautiful, from the lovely gardens to the stylish orangey.

The minute we met Ellis we knew we were in safe hands. She catered for our every need and nothing was too much trouble. We were given excellent

support in the lead up to the big day and the tasting event prior to the wedding was an excellent experience.

On the day of the wedding from the moment we arrived the service was second to none and all the finer details were looked after. I would absolutely love to do the whole day again.

We would both like to thank Ellis, Shiby and all of the staff of the Maryborough for a fantastic day, a day we will never forget. The Maryborough will always hold a special place in our hearts.

When we got engaged we viewed a lot of weddings venues and every time we brainstormed after a viewing we always found ourselves comparing it to The Maryborough Hotel and Spa.

When we viewed The Maryborough we were given so much time and attention, it didn't feel rushed. We were blown away by

Read More

the beauty of the Orangery, the woods, the reception suite, the bridal suite, and overall the entire hotel and grounds.

We dealt with Mary and Ellis who were so professional and experienced that we always felt at ease regarding how the day would go. We really enjoyed the wedding planning and never had many worries, which I believe was down to the fact The Maryborough team did a lot of the heavy lifting for us. Their attention detail always reassured us that we made the right choice when booking our wedding venue.

I stayed in The Bridal suite the night before the wedding and I had so much fun with my family and bridal party while getting ready the morning of the wedding. The room is so spacious and the photographer and videographer were able to catch some stunning shots of the morning.

Ellis, was waiting for us when we come down to the main reception to leave and even had a backup umbrella just in case. When we arrived back from the church, the team were waiting once again and were constantly asking us if we needed a drink, food, etc which I think is important as the couple is busy meeting everyone during the drinks reception. Our guests absolutely loved our drinks reception in The Orangery, the décor, food, and drink were so elegant.

The evening reception was beautiful and exactly what we wanted. Every course was on time, the food is was fantastic, and the whole evening ran off perfectly.

So many of our guests commented on the service during the wedding and their stay. Many of us stayed an extra couple of nights and the Maryborough team were so nice and accommodating.

Thank you again to Ellis and the Maryborough team for the perfect day!

We had a fantastic wedding day in June 2018, made all the more special by the stellar staff in the Maryborough hotel. Pre-wedding queries were answered promptly, I had access to the hotel several times before the wedding day to finalise table layouts & we had a memorable menu tasting experience with

Ellis, our wedding co-ordinator, was always helpful & accommodating & ensured all went smoothly on the day.
The bridal suite is beautiful & absolutely enormous, we liked it so much we stayed 2 nights.
Our guests complimented the beautiful accommodation, delicious food & relaxed atmosphere on the day. We were blessed with beautiful weather on the day so made the most of the Orangery & gardens.
The meal was outstanding in terms of quality, service & flavour. The late night buffet was a great hit & surpassed our expectations. The staff were unfailingly professional, polite & helpful.
I would recommend the hotel to any prospective wedding couples in a heartbeat, it was a brilliant experience.

I cannot say enough about the Maryborough and their staff. They made our day perfect. Ellis and Lorraine were amazing.

After thirteen years together, Seamie and I were married in the Maryborough Hotel on 9 August 2018.

From the beginning, we had wanted the room where our civil ceremony was going to be held to be special and to have a similar feeling of gravitas and authenticity that you would expect from a Church

Read More

wedding. After viewing the Orangery, we both absolutely fell in love with the room and knew that we had to have our civil wedding there. It felt special.

After we booked the venue, I continued to organize the wedding from abroad with Ellis, and was confident that the wedding would be perfect, as Ellis maintained frequent contact and helped us with every detail on the run up to the big day, from recommendations to patiently and pleasantly answering every last query. It was easy.

The day was absolutely magnificent.

In the morning, the four bridesmaids, the flower girl, our hairdresser and beautician, photographer and videographer, gathered in the Bridal suite. I decided that we would use this space to get ready after seeing the stately photographs of the bridal suite online. It is so impressive, with a large luxurious lounge area set up for afternoon tea, replete with sumptuous couches and armchairs, wide welcoming fireplace and expansive draped windows that drop from ceiling to floor. Perfect for capturing those special moments of nervous beautification for the big day, in magical light.

Our guests were enchanted by the Orangery, where we had the talented Cork-based Scarlet String Quartet play.

The day flowed freely and effortlessly. As Seamie and I, disappeared into the deep hydrangea filled garden for purple floral framed photographs, staff seamlessly transformed the Orangery into a reception area, where mini burgers and miniature delicacies were served. Laughter rippled from around the outdoor seated area. Everyone seemed so happy.

The day was choreographed to the second. Staff appeared and disappeared, graciously attending to each guest, like royalty.

We loved every minute of our wedding at the Maryborough, from the moment of booking right up until check out, we were so well looked after and no request was too much. Ellis and Conor ensured everything went seamlessly on the day and so many of our guests commented on the amazing food and

friendliness of all the staff.

We would 100% recommend the Maryborough Hotel to all future brides and grooms. We can’t wait to go back to celebrate our anniversary!

The Maryborough House Hotel was the only hotel we viewed when planning our wedding. Once we saw the orangery and beautiful ballroom we knew it was the only place we wanted. As two busy people the organising of the wedding was made so easy and straightforward by Mary & Ellis the wedding team- they

guided us gently through the planning process. They were always on the end of the phone or email to answer a query and make your requests a reality. We left the styling of the reception rooms up to the hotel and it was so beautiful, the hotel really has the wow factor without any need to add more. This was such a help at a time that is so busy. The grounds of the hotel are stunning with a mature garden which made for the most stunning backdrop in our photographs. The original Maryborough house has an iconic staircase which is a photographers dream also. The fact that the hotel offers these locations for photos meant we went straight there from the church and didn't miss our own reception like so many do. We had the most amazing wedding day, the food was gorgeous and the wine free flowed. Our guests all commented on the great service and fabulous meal. Ellis was never too far away on the day ensuring that we were looked after with drinks and food and were on track for time. No request was too much- she even provided a sick bucket for our toddler girl who ate too much from the sweet trolley!!! The bridal suite is beautiful and peaceful in the original part of the house and a perfect start to married life. . The Maryborough house hotel has it all for a wedding venue-expert staff, value for money and spectacular surroundings! Without any hesitation I would recommend the Maryborough house hotel to anyone planning a wedding. I never thought I'd say it but I wish I could do it all over again!!!

We had our wedding in the Maryborough Hotel on the 18 August this year. We knew that this was the venue for us the second we walked into the Orangery.

any queries we had and was so pleasant to deal with at all times. She was also on hand all day on the day itself and took care of every little detail!

We were blown away with the hotel from the beginning. We got to know Ellis, the wedding co-ordinator and she was so good to us. We had so many questions for her coming up to the date of the wedding but she was always so patient and helpful and nothing was ever a problem. The best thing about dealing

Read More

with the Maryborough was that they took care of everything when it came to the reception, Richard and I literally just had to show up. At our tasting the restaurant manager Shibby went through our personalised menus with us on arrival. We had plenty of food and Shibby was incredibly attentive. The General Manager, Justin also checked in with us. We felt incredibly welcome. Ellis rang me the day after the tasting and we went through each course. And even though we were delighted with the food, Ellis let us know that at any stage if we changed our mind and wanted to pop in to taste a different starter/dessert etc that would be fine. Ellis spent a few hours with us going through final details a few weeks before the wedding and was so patient when it came to making any changes etc. I also dropped up flip flops/post box the day before the wedding and Ellis met me in the car park and helped me bring in the items (even though she was dealing with another wedding that day!)
I cant say enough about the day, it was magical. The welcome we got from all the staff when we arrived was amazing. Our guests are still talking about the service from the staff, the waiting and bar staff were so attentive. Richard and I felt like royalty on the day, Ellis, Shibby and Justin looking after our every need. Even though it was lashing rain outside it didn't matter as the Orangery was so spectacular. The staff went over and above helping the photographer find places for photos. The food surpassed all our expectations, it was amazing. I cannot say enough about the hotel. I'm so glad we chose the Maryborough. Massive thanks to all of you.

My husband and I got married back on the 27th September. To say it was amazing is such an understatement. From the second myself and my bridesmaids arrived the day before the wedding we were treated like royalty. Ellis our wedding co-ordinator went above and beyond throughout the whole wedding and

the lead up to it and made myself and my husband feel very special. The day itself blew us away. The venue is stunning and we got to have our drinks reception out in the gardens in the sun. Our guests are still talking about how amazing the food was and how beautiful the hotel is. All the staff made us feel very special. We’re still in a bubble about the whole wedding and we could not be happier. It was perfect in every way

Well what can we say from start to finish we had the best experience, we didn’t have to worry about a thing when it came to the support we got from the team at the hotel. The food and service were second to none. We can’t recommend this hotel enough.
on Sun, 21st of October, 2018
Our wedding was held in July 2018 in the Maryborough Hotel. From first contact with the hotel, all the way through to menu tasting, sorting guest accommodation, pre-day planning and service on the day was first rate. Our whole day went seamlessly. The grounds and hotel offer a wonderful atmosphere

as a wedding venue. The pre dinner reception in the orangery, the wedding banquet and service were all first class. We found that no matter how big or small our requests were, they were dealt with professionally and without fuss.
Thank you Ellis, Carmel, Shiby and all the team for a memorable day. Paul & Leonie

My wife and I were absolutely thrilled with our wedding at Maryborough Hotel and Spa. It was the perfect day! Our co-ordinator Ellis and Carmel from Reservations were super helpful and friendly to us during the whole wedding planning process and wedding day itself.

Our wedding at The Maryborough was everything we could have hoped for and more.
We had looked at a number of venues but as soon as we walked into the Maryborough we both knew that this is where we would get married.
The planning process was made so easy and Ellis and her colleagues were

Read More

incredible at making the process simple and laid back. Ellis made us feel at ease and we knew that we were in safe hands.
We had our wedding ceremony in the Orangery and it was the perfect location. It is such a beautiful room that feels so special for a ceremony. We also had our speeches in the Orangery and it worked so well.
The day of our wedding was a scorcher and our drinks reception was held outside on the lawn. Our guests all raved about the canapes, not only the quality but that there was plenty for everyone. The food at dinner was fantastic and our guests all commented on how much they loved it.
The grounds are fabulous for photos and everything about the hotel is perfect for a wedding.
The honeymoon suite was out of this world and everything you would expect in such a beautiful hotel steeped in history.
Ellis our wedding coordinator was amazing and a great help to us, nothing was ever an issue. Orla who looked after us on the day was so calm and warm and we could not have been in better hands. All the staff were so welcoming, helpful and professional. A special thank you to Brian one of the managers who looked after us on this day, he was just great.
I could not recommend Maryborourgh highly enough. It is a beautiful location and the staff are truly wonderful. We had our best day ever with thanks to the team there and all their hard work.

Sat 29th Sept 2018 was when we got married. Our reception was held in the Maryborough hotel and spa. It was an amazing venue. We were so happy with how it looked on the day. The orangery received so many compliments. The attention to detail was impressive. We and our guests were well looked after

for the whole day and night.

In the lead up to the wedding, our wedding coordinator was on hand at all times. She was always on the other end of a phone or email to answer any questions we had. She was brilliant.

Overall our experience at the Maryborough hotel and spa has been excellent. We have made so many fond memories here which we will treasure forever.
on Wed, 26th of September, 2018
Myself and my husband Neil recently celebrated our wedding reception at the Maryborough Hotel and Spa and I can only say good things.

From the minute we booked the Maryborough we were so well looked after by Ellis Dunmill and Orla O' Keeffe (the hotel's Wedding Coordinators). They were

Read More

extremely responsive and just so experienced in what they do, we always felt so reassured and they advised us lots on what had worked really well in the hotel etc before and completely put us on the right path in the planning for our day.

My mum had passed away unexpectedly prior to my wedding and this was treated so sensitively and the girls were so caring on this front. It was so difficult to plan a wedding during this difficult time but the girls and the hotel relieved me of SO much anxiety. They literally owned it and I felt so reassured that we would have a wonderful memorable day.

The weeks before the wedding, tensions rise and the girls met with me on two occasions face to face to literally run through the day start to finish. On the day Orla was there on our arrival and literally there all day checking in. SHE WAS AMAZING and ensured everything went to plan. The day was emotional at times for me and Orla was just incredible and I will be forever grateful.

The hotel was spectacular, the orangery was devine for the drinks reception and the food/service was to an amazing standard. All our guests were commenting how amazing the dinner was etc. I could not recommend the Maryborough more highly and the staff are just phenomenal. Thank you so much to all the Maryborough!
on Tue, 4th of September, 2018
We got married on the 4th May 2018 and we had the most amazing day. The Maryborough is such an elegant hotel and the orangery was just stunning for the reception.

All of our guests commented on the quality of the food and we were treated so well during our wedding meal tasting.

Maryborough was perfect for our wedding pictures too as it has a stunning water fountain feature in the garden as well as the Georgian staircase and bedrooms.

The quality of the service that we received from our wedding coordinator and the staff was outstanding. We were treated exceptionally well every time we visited the hotel during the lead-up.

on Wed, 29th of August, 2018
From the very first meeting with Justin Mc Carthy we knew with the friendly relaxed feeling we got, this would be our wedding venue. We have always wanted to have a wedding with a difference and Justin and his team were very open and welcomed any ideas we had. Nothing seemed to be a problem, what we

asked for they made happen. Justin was such a pleasure to work with.

Ellis was our wedding planner and she was always very pleasant and very efficient to deal with.

We met on a few occasions with Jemma the head chef. She was so enthusiastic and eager to work with us and helped to create a menu with a difference. Derek and I are foodies and really enjoyed our food tasting outings so much. Friday afternoons for lunch became a regular event, where we got to know the staff personally and each and every one of them played a part in making our wedding experience so very special.

I had afternoon tea with my bridal party the day I picked out my wedding dress( another excuse to celebrate!) and the day I collected my wedding dress we had another Fantastic day out with lunch and bubbly.

We were always greeted with the warmest of welcomes and made to feel very special. Having the gym facilities was another great bonus for preparing for our big day. Our daughter loved her weekend swims!

I could not recommend highly enough the Maryborough house. So professional, amazing location, the Orangery is such a romantic setting for a wedding, the grounds are perfect for photographs, the gardens are beautiful, where we had our gin bar set up as well as our cava and beer reception.

The bridal suites are amazing, a lot of our guests stayed for the weekend and were so happy with all the facilities. Feedback from our guests at our wedding was overwhelming and the food was sublime.

We would like to thank Justin, Ellis, Jemma, Carmel, Brian, Adrian, Shiby, Siva, (hope we have not let anyone out) it was most certainly the perfect wedding day. Thank you so much to Justin.
on Tue, 14th of August, 2018

Her attention to detail was extraordinary and she left no stone unturned in making sure that every part of our day was exactly as we would have wished. From our delicious food tasting, to designing our homemade photo booth and candy table, Ellis could not have done more for us and was always very approachable. Compliments also to Carmel and Sarah who were extremely professional on reservations and Conor and his team, who ensured that the drinks reception in The Orangery and the meal in The Sherrard Suite ran smoothly on the day. We had a brilliant time and we and our 250 plus guests were blown away by how exceptional the food was. We would highly recommend the Maryborough with its beautiful grounds, magnificent facilities and even more fabulous staff. Thank you for everything.

We had the best time and unforgettable moments ❤

From viewing the Maryborough Hotel for the first time in December 2016 and meeting with Martina, myself and Dave knew that the Maryborough was the perfect venue for our wedding day. The whole team at The Maryborough from Martina, Orla and Ellis were an absolute pleasure to deal with and made the

planning of our day very easy and gave great advice to us on the ideas we had for the day.
The wedding day itself ran very smoothly and that's all thanks to Ellis. Our guests spoke very highly of the venue after the day, the food was excellent and the main function room is ideal with plenty of space and no need to move tables to accommodate the band. The one thing that makes the Maryborough so special is the Orangery where the drink reception is held and this room was the main selling point for us when we viewed the hotel and our guests were amazed with this room on the day.
Another plus with the Maryborough is the location that the hotel is situated, we were able to use the beautiful grounds and the hotel itself for our wedding photos.
We cannot speak highly enough of the hotel and staff and we had such a fantastic day on our wedding in the Maryborough. Thanks so much for making our day so special :)
on Thu, 10th of May, 2018
Myself and Patrick got married in December 2017 with our reception in The Maryborough Hotel.

All our guests commented on how fabulous the meal was and just how impressed they were with The Maryborough as a wedding venue.

on Sun, 11th of February, 2018
What can we say, from start to finish the Maryborough team made our wedding journey so special, intimate, personal and easy.

We had nothing to worry about. From the minute we arrived

to the hotel on the day they just took over and everything ran so smoothly (if all too quickly!!!)
All our personal touches were evident to see and nothing we asked was too much hassle. From pictures to signs to sweet carts they did it all and exactly as how we had asked.
The drunk reception was stunning and something many of our guests complimented. The meal was devine and promptly served. They even went so far as to surprise me with battered sausages as a joke during the speeches!!Bonus points there!!!

I really can not recommend the Maryborough enough for any newly engaged couples. They are experts in their craft and their attention to detail is flawless. I only wish we could go back and do it all again!!

We would like to thank Ellis and Conor for making our vision become reality and giving us the Wedding of our dreams.
on Mon, 8th of January, 2018
From the moment we stepped in the door to view the Maryborough for our wedding, we were struck with the amazing atmosphere, grounds and class of the hotel. It was the easiest decision of our whole wedding to book the Maryborough!

as special as it was. We built up a great relationship with Ellis and the hotel staff prior to our day and this added to our experience.They were extremely accommodating with our requests (no matter how big or small) and made us feel at ease from the get go.

The food was beyond perfection (not just the main meal-the food at our drinks reception and later in the night were equally as exquisite)

We highly recommend this hotel as it was a real comfort for us knowing and trusting that Ellis and her staff were top class at what they do.

I wish we could do it all again!!!!

Thanks to everyone in the Maryborough hotel and spa,

Myself an my husband got married in Maryborough on the 13th of July 2017. From the day myself and Chris walked in the door of Maryborough to view the hotel as a potential venue, all members of staff have been extremely helpful, kind and supportive.

In the lead up to the wedding Martina kept us

calm every step of the way, she is extremely organised, efficient and also has a great sense of humour and she is very easy to get on with. We had total confidence in Martina the whole way through the process and we feel she went above and beyond to make our day perfect. We were extremely lucky to have her as our wedding planner.

Since the wedding many guest have said to myself and Chris that throughout their stay in Maryborough they felt they received 5 star treatment from all members of staff. Maryborough is such a beautiful venue ( especially when the sun is shining!) but it is the staff that make it such a great place to be.

So from myself, Chris and all our guests a huge thank you to you all for helping to make our day so special and memorable.
on Mon, 31st of July, 2017
We had a wedding reception at the Maryborough Hotel & Spa on the 29th of June, 2017. We had an amazing day and this was purely down to the excellent and highly professional work ethic that Martina demonstrated from the very moment we contacted her in early February. Martina did her utmost to help

and this was greatly appreciated as we were organising our wedding while Emin and I were in Azerbaijan. She was there for us when we were trying to bring together the elements that helped personalise our wedding, which made it even more special e.g. the projector so we could show Irish and Azerbaijani music and film clips during the wedding meal, a long table for an Azerbaijani display and staging of traditional caucasian dances in the wedding hall. If we had a question, she was able to speak to us on Skype and would reply promptly to emails and calls. Because of her, we were able to successfully stage our wedding in the space of 5 months. Martina's most special qualities are her sincerity to help, listen and put people at their ease. She became a good friend.

On the day, we were expertly looked after by Nicole. She was able to notify us if something needed to be done and from the guest reactions they all thoroughly enjoyed the Orangery, gardens and the meal in the hall. It was truly a pleasure to have had our reception at the Maryborough and it is a place that we continue to go back to as they do not just simply treat you as a customer, but as a friend.

We would highly recommend the Maryborough Hotel and Spa to everyone. Thank you so much Martina and Nicole.
on Sat, 29th of July, 2017
We had our ceremony and reception in the Maryborough House Hotel in May 2017. All of the staff went above and beyond to give us a very special day. From the day we met Martina I knew we were in good hands, we had some special requirements and Martina just waved her magic wand and made it all happen.

Read More

All emails were answered quickly if we had any questions and we were always greeted with a smile when we met. Martina is extremely professional and efficient but with warmth and friendliness and she instantly gives you confidence in her ability.
On the day, we got to know the amazing Nicole. She made sure everything ran smoothly and looked after us so well throughout the day. Nicole doesn't just manage the day she goes way beyond making sure the couple are treated like royalty. In the evening Dave the night manager was great and again nothing asked of them was too much trouble.

I would highly recommend the hotel and gardens for photos. We now have a beautiful wedding album. Our ceremony was just stunning in the orangery and the reception room was so beautiful.

All our guests were highly impressed with the food throughout the day and evening. The quality was second to none.

Overall a 10/10!!!

Thank you so much to all the staff especially Martina and Nicole for the best day ever!

future couples getting married in the hotel. The Maryborough is the perfect backdrop for a wedding with the amazing gardens and The Orangery which made for fantastic photographs. We had our ceremony in The Orangery and it was such a romantic room to say our vows surrounded by our family and friends. The staff were on hand throughout the entire day to ensure that not only us but also our guests had an enjoyable experience. The food was exceptional and our wedding guests are still saying it was one of the best weddings they've ever been to and this is down to the hotel staff; the food/wine; the band and of course Martina. We loved our wedding day so much that we would do it all over again and this is mainly down to the hotel and staff being so great. We would recommend The Maryborough Hotel & Spa to any wedding couples still looking for the perfect venue and to those who have booked their wedding day in the hotel, you're in for an amazing day.

The venue speaks for itself but every member of staff at every level went the extra mile. Even members of the bar staff remembered us from a lunch visit a few days prior to the wedding and made a point of saying hello to us on the day itself also. It was those personal touches that really made it all the more special.
I can honestly say that the venue was the one element of the wedding that didn't cause a single element of stress as I knew that everything would be done well and with the same level of care and attention that I would put into it myself. I can't recommend Maryborough Hotel and Spa enough!

Maryborough Hotel was the first venue we looked at for our wedding and it bowled us away from the very beginning. The beautiful grounds and stunning interiors speak for themselves, as does the efficiency and friendliness of the staff that ensure the hotel is remembered fondly in guests' minds long

after they have left.

The hotel's not-so-secret weapon, wedding co-ordinator Niamh, is like the bride's fairy godmother. Niamh is clearly passionate about her job and the couples she works with, but most importantly, about the hotel itself. As we live abroad, we organised the wedding primarily via email and Niamh replied to each and every one, making our job a whole lot easier. She truly was a dream to work with. We both felt 100 per cent comfortable with handing her the reins, I only wish I could afford to hire her to organise the rest of my life!

Everything on the Big Day itself was perfect. I remember getting a sneak peek at the Sherrard Suite before the guests arrived for dinner and was just stunned at how beautiful everything looked. I was delighted to see the care and attention the staff had put into arranging the little touches we had dreamt up for the room. The food was excellent and we are still receiving compliments about the staff and the amazing 'Irish hospitality' as a lot of our guests were from England and Australia.

The entire wedding weekend at The Maryborough was a success story from start to finish. It exceeded our expectations and the hard work behind the scenes from all the staff involved ensured my husband and I had the most wonderful weekend spent with family and friends.

This hotel will now always have a special place in our hearts, and I cannot recommend it enough to any couple hoping to make their dream wedding come true.

other end of the phone if we had any questions, had great suggestions and treated us so well that we can't thank her enough.

On the wedding day itself Dominic was the manager in charge and all we can say is what an absolute gentleman he is. He looked after us, our family and guests so well and ensured the day ran smoothly from start to finish. He really was fantastic and was never more than a few steps away. His manner and professionalism on the day is still being talked about by the guests and again words can't say how thankful we are.

The Chef made an absolute spectacular job with the food, everything was presented so well and the flavour was outstanding...everyone said they loved the meal and the evening buffet was also unbelievable!! We really had such a great day.

The new orangery for the drinks reception was so different and had an amazing atmosphere looking onto the beautiful gardens...another area that all the guests were very impressed with.

The whole day surpassed all our expectations and every one of the staff were so friendly and helpful. We can't recommend the Maryborough Hotel highly enough, there genuinely wasn't any area that we could fault - thank you all so much.

My name is Andrew Dunne, Myself and my wife Helen Power had the joy of getting married in your hotel on the 20th of September 2012.
This is just an email to say thank you to your hotel on behave of all our guests and ourselves on creating such a brilliant atmosphere in your hotel.
Everyone had an

Read More

amazing time and we are still getting compliments on how smooth and relaxed everything went.
All our guests were amazed with the standard of the food and the level of service provided by each and every one of your staff throughout out the hotel,
From the girls on reception to the waiters and waitresses in the restaurant. We had a few fussy eaters and even they said they cleared the plate of food as it was so good.
There were one or two little stories told to us by our guests that really impressed us, one of our guests asked would it be possible to get a green tea instead of a normal one after the dinner
The waitress who was serving the table duly obliged to the surprise of our guest as there has been times when other hotels have not being as obliging.
On the night of the wedding I asked the security guard down by the smoking area downstairs would we be able to have a few chairs to sit on outside as myself and a few of the lads intend on having cigars and would like to sit down, this was not a problem to him and off he went and got us six chairs, no hassle, no fuss ,no bother
These may same like little things but to myself and Helen they meant a lot and were part of making our day.

A few individuals that stood out for us over the time we dealt with the hotel.....

Elaine, our wedding coordinator, lovely woman and a joy to deal with anytime we met or talked with Elaine she allowed us to bounce ideas around on what we wanted to do and then would give her opinion on whether it would work or not and if she felt it might not always came up with a little solution to the problem. She was always available to us so I would make sure to keep her as she is one of the good ones.

Dominic, a pure gent and a pleasure to have had him involved in our wedding. He approached me on the morning of the wedding and told me to make sure myself and Helen enjoyed the day and that he would always be within 20ft of us for the day making sure everything went the way it was meant to and through to his word he was, during my speech I had a prop put aside and when I turned around to use it at first I couldn’t see where it was but then out of nowhere Dominic appeared with the prop and handed it to me, Little things like this made the day feel that little bit more special.

Roy and Alan behind the bar,
We first met the two lads when we did our tasting in June and when we left myself and Helen both hoped the two lads would be working the weekend of our wedding and sure enough they were,
They both remembered myself and Helen straight away and we all caught up chatting just like we had at our tasting. The lads are a credit to your hotel with their chat and banter that they had with ourselves and indeed all our guests.
A group of our friends would particularly like to thank the lads for the sandwiches they sent out to them on the afternoon after the wedding as they were having a few cures and the sandwiches helped them through till the evening.
My guests would also like to compliment the lads on their cocktail making skills, keep it up lads!

Martin, our bar man out in the marquee also a gent, hope all is well with him and his wife’s new arrival.

Jenny on reception, absolute pleasure, nothing was ever a problem for her to deal with and always had a smile on her face. Also the young porter who had to slave bring up the bits and pieces up to the honeymoon suite, fair play cause there was a lot and even after going up the stairs a fair few times still made sure that everything was where it should have been and always with a smile.

Marie in reservations was so helpful in the build-up to the wedding, any updates on guests booking the rooms that I need were always sent to me straight away and unfortunately we never got to thank her while we were there

To some up the email, you have a unique and wonderful team in the Maryborough hotel and we cannot thank you enough for the way everyone at the wedding was treated,
Our day couldn’t have been so good without the help of all your staff,
We would appreciate if you could forward this email on to the relevant staff mentioned above
We look forward to returning on our first anniversary to see how the renovations in the bar have gone, and we hope to possibly return before then too.
Once again a big thank you to everyone in your beautiful hotel for making our day so special and very memorable.

We recently had our wedding in the Maryborough Hotel on the 1st of August 2011. In the run up to the big day the wedding co-ordinator was excellent and extremely supportive as we only gave her less than 5 months notice. On the day the staff of the hotel were very attentive but not over powering,

they were keeping everything flowing quietly in the background. The marquee is a fantastic addition to the Maryborough, its a relaxing start to the evening proceedings and ensures all the wedding party stays together before dinner. In relation to the food it was of an extremely high standard, a guest of ours commented that they felt like they were out for dinner in a good restaurant rather than at a wedding where sometimes the food can just be slapped up to you, from the arrival canapes to the night time finger food everything was of good quality and most impotantly tasted good. From our point of view we were well looked after in the run up to the wedding, on the day and also the following days. The Maryborough is truly an exceptional venue for a wedding and offers fantastic value. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone considering a wedding or any other special event. Michelle

Hi there, I just got married on the 4th of August in Maryborough. I rate this amazing place five stars. Day one of booking this venue felt right. As I don't live in cork anymore and live far away I needed a best friend to be there every single step of the way and I found that from the first day I

met sinead ,Maryborough's wedding co-ordinator. It meant so much to feel so unique and in a way felt like we were the only couple to have ever got married there. Many hotels didn't give me the reassurance like maryborough hotel did. All our guests travelled from as far as hong kong, we even had a celebrity chef at our day and the feedback from the venue ,the staff and the food was out of this world from everyone. Maryborough and its staff made our day the best day of our lives. Thank you maryborough .You deserve all the awards and recognition for the hard work you do . Lisa xx

We chose The Maryborough for our wedding reception in July 2010 after being at a friends wedding there a few years earlier. Everything exceeded our expectations from the service the staff gave is, the food, to the outdoor dole for our drinks reception. We loved the day and so did our guests. Would

A huge thank you to everybody at The Maryborough. Our wedding was everything we could have asked for. The day ran so smoothly and we enjoyed it immensely. From the very first day we went to the Maryborough we felt welcome and comfortable. We have to say a special word of thanks to Sinéad, who was

Read More

our wedding planner. She was so friendly, perfectly organised and efficient and great fun to deal with. We always felt like we had as much time to talk about things as we needed (there was never an occasion where we felt rushed) and if I ever had little queries I called or e-mailed Sinéad and always received a prompt and helpful response. I really can't say enough about Sinéad, she is quite simply excellent at her job! We found their all inclusive packages really great. It made everything so easy for us, we still had choices but we didn't have to worry about forgetting anything. Also it meant that we knew from the outset what the wedding was going to cost and there were no hidden extras. The grounds in the Maryborough are beautiful and it was so lovely to arrive and find all our guests sitting together in the garden, enjoying the drinks reception. The bridal suite is amazing...I think we'd quite happily live there! The meal was delicious and all the guests were commenting on it. I thought the evening buffet was so elegant and the food was really great. We also need to say a special word of thanks to Seán, who looked after us on the evening of the wedding. Here is another person who is fantastic at their job! Our every need was taken care of and he was so helpful and friendly. He went above and beyond (even helping us to organise a small family get together the following day). So overall, the staff in the Maryborough were all so nice and helpful. We would highly recommend The Maryborough, you are guaranteed a great day! With best regards, Doireann and Eddie (married 14th July 2011)

Myself and my husband Keith had our wedding reception in the Maryborough on the 27th May 2011 and all I can say is WOW, it truly was the best day of our lives. From our very first contact with our wedding coordinator Sinead O Sullivan, we found her to be extremely helpful, friendly and

professional; nothing was too much trouble and it was clear that Sinead was eager to make sure it was the perfect day for us. From their excellent reputation I had high expectations of the hotel anyway, but in all honestly they well and truly exceeded my expectations on the day. The grounds were absolutely gorgeous, as was the hotel itself. A talking point among the guests was the dome in the gardens where the drinks reception was held; it was so impressive. We got some fabulous photos both within the hotel and in the grounds and it really is the perfect setting. A big thank you to all the staff there on the day for looking after us and our guests so well. The room looked amazing and was set up perfectly. I have to say also that the food was outstanding; you really could not get better. So to sum it up, if you are looking for somewhere perfect for your big day I would highly recommend the Maryborough Hotel; it really is an amazing venue

The service provided by the Maryborough Hotel & Spa for our recent wedding was nothing short of excellent! The care and attention provided to us on the day, and in the lead up to it by management and staff was exceptional. So much so, that we have been inundated with praise and compliments from

guests about the quality of the food and the level of service provided, not to mention the beautiful setting of the hotel and the added surprise of the marquise for the drinks reception.

My husband Richard and I got married in the Maryborough House Hotel on 2nd December 2010. It was the most wonderful experience from Start to Finish. We enjoyed every second of it. From the first day that we went to view the hotel and meet our wedding Co-ordinator at the hotel Elaine Donnelly we knew

it was the hotel for us. The run up to the wedding and the day itself went so smoothly and was so enjoyable that I just don't know how to thank Elaine and all the staff at the Maryborough enough. We actually got Married in the Hotel itself by way of civil ceremony and then had our reception there afterwards. They made the day so special for us, the decor and ambience was second to none, the food was out of this world and even now 6 months on guests are still talking about the day. The hotel and it's grounds are so wonderful for photographs even in the winter. In summary I really can't recommend this venue enough to any couple who wants the perfect wedding day. Margaret

Myself and Shane are delighted that we chose The Maryborough Hotel as our wedding venue. We couldn't have asked for more assistance form the staff at the hotel right through from our initial meeting to our big day. We would like to give a big thank to all the staff for making our wedding day so

My husband John and I had our wedding reception in the Maryborough on 2nd August 2010. From day one we felt our day was 'in safe hands' as we experienced the utmost in professionalism and courtesy from Elaine and the staff at Maryborough. The advice on all matters from food to decor, right down to

the smallest detail made our day even more special. The day went off without a hitch, and this was due in no small part to the wonderful staff and surroundings at Maryborough. The room looked amazing and I still remember the feeling of excitement when we stepped into it for the first time! Everyone we spoke to raved about the ambiance and service and in particular about the food! The marquee in the garden for our drinks reception was a really nice touch and again many people commented on how lovely it was. On the day Hugh was in the background ensuring that everything went well and was a pleasure to deal with. From the moment we stepped out of the wedding car for our drinks reception to the very end of the night, our day in Maryborough was simply flawless! We would highly recommend Maryborough as a first-class wedding venue.

The Maryborough is by far the best hotel venue i have ever been too for a wedding. i have been there as a guest at other weddings and i then had my own wedding there over two months ago. the staff are so friendly and helpful any time you go there. they really could not do enough for us and our

families and friends. since the wedding day everyone has been commenting on the quality of the rooms and the food. the dome out the side is a fantastic idea and really an added bonus for any wedding. the grounds also at the Maryborough are amazing and i got some really beautiful shots at different locations throughout the grounds. all in all a fantastic location for any event but especially for a Wedding. i would really rate the Maryborough 5/5.

I had my wedding in the Maryborough June 2010 and what an amazing day it was .The hotel itself has a mix of the old vintage feel with a modern updated twist . As it was summer and fabulous weather so we had a marquee out in the gardens with the champangne reception , guests were in awe of this

beautiful 5 star extravanganza , staff were so nice and accommodating with several requests . The dinner was absolutley ravishing , all the guests were talking how nice the food was especially for a big wedding of 195 . The room itself was stunning with no extra flowers or costs needed . The staff from when we booked the wedding until it was over could not have been more helpful & friendly . The only regret I have is that I never organised a post wedding barbuque for the Sunday , but still all friends and family chilled out in beautiful gardens for the afternoon having a few glasses of wine reminiscing about the days events . All in all I would highly reccommend the Maryborough to anyone who wants a beautiful , elegant and quality day . It is well worth it !!! Xxxxx
